Luanda – The Second General-Commander of the National Police for Public Order, Paulo de Almeida, said Sunday in Luanda that throughout the electoral process the corporation’s activities will take into account criteria such as legality and impartiality.
On an exclusive interview to ANGOP, chief commissioner Paulo de Almeida revealed that the National Police in its activities, as a non partisan and impartial organ, must simply abide by the law, to guarantee public order and tranquility.
On the other hand, he warned that the Police will not allow the political parties, or anyone for that matter, to violate the principles outlined in the law with the intention of creating an environment of insecurity during the electoral process.
“We must not allow the political parties to violate the principles outlined in the law. However, we are ready to provide security to the political organisations during their activities, it is our duty”, he assured.
Nine political organisations are contesting for this year’s general elections, set for August 31.
